ARGH! 1408 is the one *I* want, that one's an old friend!
I got this shot of the 1408 in the EL's Black Rock Yard in 1976 when I was 15.
It was soon enough after C-day that she hadn't yet been adulterated with any
CRs and still had all the external steam generator equipment details intact.
Didn't the 1405 and 1409 also get done in HO by P2K?
There must be fairly decent photos of those two kicking around.
Guess I'll shell out for the unnumbered one and make 1408 cab side and
numberboard decals :P
I have a pair of the previous run of Torpedo Tube units in NYC and those two
are fine runners.
